The readers of Q Magazine love Radiohead almost as much as I do...

According to this article from The Sun, the readers of Q Magazine voted three Radiohead albums into the top 10 greatest albums ever, including numbers 1 and 2. Now if only they would realize that Kid A is better than OK Computer...

This blogging 'ish is for real.

So I heard the other day that a friend from high school, Byron Crawford, has made big news with his blog. Then I ran into his young brother and inspiration for my dreadlocks, Jason, today at the Rams game (yes, they rolled over for the Niners), and he reiterated how big Byron's blog is. He even makes money off people advertising on his site. How dope is that? I wish I had interesting stuff to say so I could make money off of writing stuff. Anyway, check out his blog here.

My favorite birthday wish.

I received a few calls, voicemails, text messages, and e-mails today wishing me happy birthday. While Jegro's hillarious voice message was absolutely entertaining, my favorite wish was an e-mail from Tom Musick entitled "24 candles":

My next computer MUST have an AMD processor in it.

I am slightly disappointed in myself because the two computers I have purchased so far both have Intel processors in them, which have conistently been outperformed by AMD processors. The redeeming factor is that they are both Dells, and that I got a discount on them through Boeing.

After reading yet another article demonstrating the superiority of AMD processors, I'm pretty sure that there is no way that I am buying/building an Intel-based computer the next time around.

Why I can't leave St. Louis.

Last night was one of those nights when I couldn't fall asleep because I had so many thoughts running through my head. They mostly involved the vastness of the world and how I want to see as much of it as I can. This then lead to a conclusion that I can't really appreciate a place while just zipping through as a tourist...I need to spend some time there to really get to know the place.

Then came a question to myself: if a situation came up where I was offered an awesome job somewhere else, whether in the States or not, would I take it? I think the conclusion I came to was that I probably wouldn't unless it was something I absolutely couldn't turn in triple my salary or some other amazing benefit. I think this is because I have so much tied up in St. Louis...friends, family, school. I feel like I would need somebody really close to me to be in a place that I would consider moving to. The thought of starting a whole new life alone kinda scares me.

I guess that'll do for the random thought of the month.

My laptop is back.

The screen seems to be working properly, so everything should be back to normal.
